It’s finally Eid Fitr, a celebration to commemorate success in fasting during the month of Ramadhan. Eid Fitri is celebrated during the Islamic month, Syawal.
In Malaysia, Malays will usually insert either rice or glutinous rice in different parts of plants depending on the type of food we make. For instance, there are ketupat, which is rice cooked inside woven young palm leaves, the triangular ketupat palas, glutinous rice inserted in palas leaves and finally, lemang, glutinous rice wrapped with banana leaves and cooked in a bamboo stick with coconut milk.
These are one of the many local Malaysian food that we make at our kampung to celebrate the arrival of Eid Fitr.
Food is such a great way to tell stories & recipes more so! This is a little tribute to a wonderful sunshine-soul of a friend we lost recently. Vicky loved food. It was his life. He also touched everyone else’s life with his innovative & creative recipes; from sizzling mushroom & ricotta pan-pizzas to candied fruit cake & coconut coffee; Vicky had a wonderful way of adding the most unique twists to the simplest of recipes. This is an illustration celebrating life, Vicky’s wonderful life - ‘Vicky’s vegan coconut ice-cream’ & our final conversation together x
I knew I wanted to draw desserts with beans, and upon doing some research, I found that different countries around Asia have their own versions of shaved ice and sweet beans. I wanted to highlight this fact in my illustration, so I made sure to include other ingredients that are particular to each country's interpretation of the dessert. I personally love having lots of beans in my halo-halo!
This illustration is about my father-in-law's family recipe of Caribbean kidney beans. These are great as a side dish and have been a great way for me to bond with my in-laws, teaching me how to cook and making me part of the family. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Beans Around The World.
My aunt lived in Panama for a couple of years in the 1970's. When she returned, she brought back amazing sandstone carvings and molas. As I was looking at Google images of Panama, I realized how much the area changed since she was there. So I decided to draw my interpretation of a modern mola, using various buildings as a backdrop.
The buildings illustrated (yes, I used some artistic license) are: 1) The rooftop ramp is Frank Gehry's Biomuseo; 2) The spice grinder/spewer is the W Hotel Panama; 3) The mandolin slicer/chopper is Central Tower; and 4) The circular slide is F & F Tower. I loved the idea of combining a kitchen with a playground, which is how I think of my kitchen.
This piece is for the Bean Contest! I wanted to illustrate a Vietnamese bean dessert I used to love as a child called Che Ba Mau which translates to Three Color Dessert. It consists of sweetened red beans, mashed mung beans, pandan jelly, and a sweet coconut sauce on top! Yum! The dish is typically served over crushed ice and was a favorite of mine during hot summers.
As a New Year's tradition for having good luck in the coming new year, my family would enjoy a meal with black-eyed peas, ham and a dark leafy green like Jamaican callaloo leaves. I created this soup recipe when my children were sick over New Years Day, so that they could enjoy our family's tradition while getting lots of nutrients.
